Madagascar – The Musical Coming to Sydney
It’s time to move it! Move it! The Australian premiere of the international touring production of the ferociously funny Madagascar – The Musical will take place in Sydney in December.
Adapted from the critically acclaimed smash-hit DreamWorks animated motion movie, this fun-filled family musical has performed to sold-out audiences across the UK and New Zealand. It is brought to life by imaginative and colourful sets, world-class puppets, action-packed adventure and spectacular new songs that will inspire everyone to “move it move it” in the aisles!
In a major coup for western Sydney, Madagascar – The Musical will be performed at the spectacular 2,000 seat Sydney Coliseum Theatre, the first of its kind in the rapidly growing region of Greater Western Sydney.
“I am delighted the Australian premiere of Madagascar – The Musical will be brought to life at the spectacular, state-of-the-art Sydney Coliseum Theatre. This is a world-class production in a world-class Western Sydney venue that will delight local and visiting theatregoers…” said Minister for Tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing our first theatre production to Australia, with one of our favourite family titles – Madagascar the Musical. We’ve loved producing this show all over Europe and Asia and have had hundreds of thousands of patrons enjoy being swept up in the adventures of Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria – based on the well-loved Dreamworks movies,” said producer David Hutchinson, CEO, The Path Entertainment Group.
Just like the movie, Madagascar – The Musical follows all the favourite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar!
Alex the lion is the King of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hip hip hippo– have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public without a care in the world. Or so they thought.
Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his daring escape – with the help of some plotting penguins – to explore the world.
Performances of Madagascar – The Musical will be from 16 to 31 December 2022 at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre. Waitlist now via www.madagascarthemusical.com.au
